-star general, leslie clashing, good to have you. >> great to be with you. >> neil: the argument is whether the white house is running out the clock, what do you think? >> i don't think so. i think you have to lay this thing in a real investigation. after 9/11 we took four years to really understand what happened. it turned out before 9/11 there were really strong warnings. i think there is something else going on here in benghazi. there is a lot of cloak and dagger stuff associated with it. there have been enough leaks to make me believe there is more to this story. >> neil: has there been enough to discomfort you that it's possible even the president or very least his top advisors let us down? >> no, i don't think so. i think it's opposite. i think they were doing remarkable things in benghazi. they don't want to release what was actually going on there. the ambassador didn't live in benghazi. the ambassador was in tripoli. benghazi is something else. >> neil: but there were many warnings about how bad benghazi was and you don't think right now would, it do any good? >> think what is goin

and will not set women back 50 years and finally leslie says i think equal pay for equal work is the most pressing issue for women this election. what do you think? i'll get back to you on that. this is referring to the 2009 lilly ledbetter fair pay act and i know, diane, you spoke to governor romney about this. he said while he didn't support it at the time, if he were elected he would not repeal it. but that lack of support, i think, did influence a number of women out there. >> yes, and then ultimately he wouldn't tell me. he would not say whether he, indeed, would have signed it if it came to his desk. i don't believe he ever said he would have signed it if it came to his desk. so, cokie, on this issue of the single ladies out there and other women -- what do you think? >> i'm certainly seeing single ladies being overwhelmingly for president obama as they were four years ago and there's no real falloff there, but i was just looking to see if we had a number on that abortion question to see if that seems to be the indicator. the problem is people tend to say when you ask about, you know, what i
